    Random question: I'm still on Clash of Kings, but I was reading a lot of forums that were saying that pretty much nothing happens for the next 3 books. Is this true? Should I keep reading up to Dance With Dragons? I am really enjoying the books so far, but don't see the point of reading if he doesn't progress the storyline too far :/

    Thanks for all your feedback guys, the further I got into the book the more I realized how monotonic and unnecessary Robert's POV would be. Lost Direwolf sums it up best for me hahaha. Plus some characters, like Cersei, don't seem to need a chapter from their perspective because they're pretty easy to understand and what the others say about them is enough to give us a good idea of what's going on..

    Never written from Robert's POV?
    I'm about half way through GOT and I've noticed that Martin never writes from the POV of King Robert. Sorry if this has been asked before, but I am curious as to why this is? Does anyone know if Martin ever cleared this up? Because the King is a fairly major character, and it would be interesting to see the story from his perspective, for example to see if deep inside he knows about his wife and her brother, what he thinks of Gendry, etc. And Martin doesn't seem to have a problem writing from characters' POV that will eventually die, so I'm finding it strange he wouldn't provide us insight into King Robert's mind..

    I've just started reading the first book and I'm not familiar with some of the phrases Martin uses, such as "in their cups." For example in the prologue it says "it is hard to take order from a man you laughed at in your cups." He uses the phrase again later on in the book and it doesn't make sense to me..I'm hoping someone here knows what I'm talking about, even though it sounds kinda weird haha
